What President Tinubu Did About My Reinstatement – Emir Sanusi Opens Up

The new Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, revealed that President Bola Tinubu did not obstruct his reinstatement by the Kano State government.

Sanusi stated that the President resisted the pressure to use federal power to prevent his return and prioritized maintaining law and order in Kano State.

Plateau News recalls that Sanusi Lamido Sanusi was reinstated as the Emir of Kano by Governor Abba Yusuf after signing the new Kano Emirate Council Law 2024, which repealed the previous law enacted by former Governor Abdullahi Ganduje.

Sanusi praised President Bola Tinubu for not obstructing his reinstatement. He noted that President Tinubu viewed the issue as a local matter and resisted pressures to use federal power to interfere, focusing instead on ensuring law and order in Kano State.

Speaking in an interview with TVC, the former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) said: “As you know, I was appointed the 14th Emir of the single emirate of Kano in June 2014 and now I am reappointed as the Emir of the single emirate of Kano.

“I would also like to express my thanks to his excellency Alhaji Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu without whose principled stance of non-interference in the internal affairs of the state, this would not have been possible.

“The president has shown that he is a respecter of the constitution and the separation of powers, he recognises that this is a purely local matter and that the government has a responsibility to do what is right for the state.

“I’m aware that he has resisted all pressure to get the federal government to be involved.

“This for me is a continuation of service that I started, it is also an opportunity God has given me to improve on my previous tenure.”
